I have been researching my family tree for a few years now and just can't seem to find all my "Missing Branches".
Please feel free to look over my information ~ that I've gathered so far and don't hesitate to let me know if you see where I have made an error. If you think we might have a connection ~ just send me an email & let's compare notes, I'm more than willing to share any information.
I'm especially interested in my "WILKERSON/WOOD" family members. I believe most of them were originally from Arkansas, North Carolina, Texas, Alabama areas, and ended up in Webbers Falls, Muskogee County, Oklahoma, abt. 1900's. Here is a "little of what I've gathered at this point.
GEORGE WILKERSON (Nov.27,1882-Sept.23,1946), married ELIZA MUSKRAT (1882-July 17,1946). They had son #1, Unknown (Jan. 25, 1908-Jan. 25, 1908), son #2, TOMMY WILKERSON (Sept.28, 1914-July 8, 1963). They lived and worked on their farm in Webbers Falls, Muskogee County, Oklahoma.
TOMMY married DOROTHY WOOD, she is originally from Ft.Smith, AR, (1919?-??). Tommy & Dorothy had four children:
(1)Daughter #1, (1936-1937), died shortly after birth.
(2)THOMAS LEE (May 9, 1937-Living)
(3)JERRY DALE (Mar 25, 1938-Nov. 12, 1999)
(4)PATRICIA ANN (1940?-Living)
Tommy & Dorothy's relationship ended in a divorce around 1941-1945. The (3) kids remained in Oklahoma with Tommy for a short time - before having to be placed in Indian Orphanages. The children were very young when they were separated from their mother, DOROTHY WOOD. So, none of them are really sure "what exactly happen to the relationship between Tommy & Dorothy". I would like to hear from anyone ~ that can help me out on her life after their divorce in Oklahoma. I'd love to have the opportunity to be able to find out more about Dorothy. She's the Grandmother that I never had the chance to get to know.
I would appreciate any info/hints/advice on this "Wilkerson Family Tree" of mine with "Too Many Missing Branches".
